Audit Projects -- Florida (FL_2020)

  • Top Counties -- In Georgia, the top 20 counties out of 67 (29%) includes 80% of the electorate
  • Ballot Images -- Ballot images are generally available by Public Records Request and AuditEngine has been tested on many of them. Florida officially allows counties to utilize 3rd-party independent automated audits. Many counties systematically delete their ballot images, and this is current being reviewed in court cases.

  • Voting System -- Florida uses both ES&S and Dominion voting systems.

  • Official Audits -- Signed into law in 2007, Florida's audit law is not binding on official results, does not lead to a full recount, and audits only one randomly-selected election contest, selected separately in each county. No contest with boundaries greater than a county-wide contest can be effectively audited. In 2013 the audit law was amended to provide, in addition to a manual audit, the option of an "automated independent audit".

The manual audit "shall consist of a public manual tally of the votes cast in one randomly selected race that appears on the ballot." SeeFla. Stat. Ann. §101.591(2)(a).The automated audit "shall consist of a public automated tally of the votes cast across every race that appears on the ballot." SeeFla. Stat. Ann. §101.591(2)(b).

  • Poll Tapes -- We have also been able to access "digital poll tapes" which we can use in a "Poll Tapes Audit" and it has been helpful in tracking down issues there.

(Note: The Number of voters shown below is not absolutely current, but still provides valid relative ranking.)
